Once Again, Freedom’s Ring is Silenced by the Ferocious Oligopoly! https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/10/22/once-again-freedoms-ring-is-silenced-by-the-ferocious-oligopoly/ https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/10/22/once-again-freedoms-ring-is-silenced-by-the-ferocious-oligopoly/#respond Tue, 22 Oct 2019 19:46:44 +0000 https://www.lloydkaufman.com/?p=2620  

Does independence have a place in our world any longer? If Google and YouTube have their way, then it is a resounding NO! Troma Entertainment has always represented the underdog. We have prided ourselves in our ability to give them a voice as well as an audience. For over 45 years, we have been fighting an uphill battle against the devil-worshipping, multi-nation media cartels and this YouTube censorship is just the latest in a long line of vicious attacks against the “Little Guy”. Their de-monetization policies have STOLEN from the pockets of the people who provide them with their ART, which GOOGLE lovingly refers to as “content”. The same people whose hard work and dedication to ART built the very same audience that YouTube now considers merely “consumers.”

Troma Entertainment once gave our fans over 250 movies absolutely FREE on our YouTube channel as a gift for years of loyalty. Due to the everchanging “Community Guidelines,” most of those films had to be removed. Most recently, YouTube and its mistress, GOOGLE, have given the Troma Movie Channel strikes for PRIVATE videos, unseen to the public. They say TROMA’S WAR, 1986 (FREE on Google for over 8 years) is OBSCENE! This film is a fan and festival favorite! Many of our movies are bootlegged on other channels with no negative ramifications to their channels! We now risk losing our 540k plus subscribers, in what can only be viewed as a dangerous muzzling of competition by the money-hungry media oligopoly, who wish to control what we watch, thereby controlling how we think. This is a dangerous path we are headed down, leading to a world where YouTube could have never been created in the first place.

For you 540,000 plus subscribers who enjoy our FREE Troma Movies Channel and the uncountable YouTubers, who risk losing everything you have sacrificed for and built, the time has already passed! U FANS NEED 2 RAISE UR VOICES!

GUN CONTROL: ARE GUNS IN OUR DNA?? https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/08/26/gun-control-are-guns-in-our-dna/ https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/08/26/gun-control-are-guns-in-our-dna/#respond Mon, 26 Aug 2019 17:15:50 +0000 https://www.lloydkaufman.com/?p=2609  

What are your thoughts?? ARE GUNS IN OUR DNA?? Lloyd Kaufman (President of Troma Entertainment/ Creator of the TOXIC AVENGER) gives Wal-Mart (the leading seller of guns in this country) alternative options to maximize profits and remove some of their moral bankruptcy!! What is his advice? Sell Porn instead! Porn rakes in huge profits annually and there are no need for lengthy, sometimes unreliable background checks.

DEPTFORD CINEMA NEEDS YOU!!! https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/06/20/deptford-cinema-needs-you/ https://www.lloydkaufman.com/news/2019/06/20/deptford-cinema-needs-you/#respond Thu, 20 Jun 2019 17:35:36 +0000 https://www.lloydkaufman.com/?p=2603  

I wanted to let you know about Deptford Cinema’s Kickstarter campaign to support exciting plans to improve the venue.


To give you a bit of background, Deptford Cinema is a non-profit, DIY organisation built and run entirely by unpaid volunteers. We screen a lot of experimental, world, classic and cult films and work by new film makers, organise panel discussions, host art exhibitions, improv live music to screenings, life drawing classes, with classic films being screened at local venues for older people with our travelling cinema. We are also dedicated to supporting new and upcoming filmmakers. Deptford Cinema is not just a place to watch films but serves as an affordable place to see a wide range of art, music and educational events and is an active hub for the local community. www.deptfordcinema.org.

Our Electric Extravaganza Kickstarter campaign which launched this week seeks to raise at least £15,000 over 30 days to upgrade our electrics. We want to do this so we can make the cinema more accessible by installing a hearing loop and adjustable lighting for neuro-diverse screenings, for example for people with autism, and improve our sound and lighting facilities so that we can put on a wider range of live music events and art installations.

We would be extremely grateful if you would consider contributing to our campaign and sharing information about the Kickstarter in your wider networks. If you would like any more information about the campaign please get in touch.

Thank you.
